This invitational think tank was held on May 23, 2008 at the Simon Fraser University Vancouver Campus. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss issues surrounding transferable shares in the British Columbia salmon fishery. Invited experts presented an overview of some of the salient information and shared their perspective to launch the discussion. Participants, representing various sectors of the salmon fishery, identified key concerns and suggested potential solutions. Several recent and relevant reports were distributed to participants in advance of the meeting to help prepare for the dialogue. This report is a transcript of the presentations and summary of the major points addressed in the dialogue.
